HBO Release Behind The Scenes Video Of Game Of Thrones Filming In Belfast

Game of Thrones fans were recently treated to a sneak behind behind the scenes video of a day’s filming in Belfast’s Titanic Studios.

The “Paint Hall Studio” has been the main production hub for Game of Thrones ever since the pilot, and “18 Hours at the Paint Hall” gives us a unique insight into the extensive work that goes into the making of the award winning HBO show.

Game of Thrones has traditionally divided production into two sections: the Dragon and Wolf units. In 2015, however, they added the White Walker Unit and all three units started filming together for the first time at the Belfast studio in December 2015.

Considering the show runners try to have only one or two units shooting at the studio at a time, having all three working together at once was a big challenge.

The video shows part of the incredible web of assistant producers, makeup artists, prop makers and other coordinators that make up the GoT workforce.

It also features appearances from actresses Emilia Clarke and Lena Headey, as well as The Mountain and fan favourite Tyrion Lannister. Filming for season 7 is well underway in both Northern Ireland and Spain, and is set to air in summer 2017.
